Italian oil and gas company Eni has made a gas and condensate discovery in CTP-Block 4, offshore Ghana.
The well, drilled on the Akoma exploration prospect, proved an estimated volume between 550 and 650 bcf of gas and 18-20 mmbbl of condensate, Eni informed on Thursday.
The discovery has further additional upside for gas and oil that will require further drilling to be confirmed, the Italian company further explained.
The exploration well Akoma – 1X is located approximately 50 kilometers off the coast and about 12 km north-west from Sankofa hub, where the John Agyekum Kufuor FPSO is located. The well was drilled by the Maersk Voyager drilling ship in a water depth of 350 meters and reached a total depth of 3790 meters.
Eni said that the Akoma – 1X proved a single gas and condensate column in a 20 m thick sandstone reservoir interval of cenomanian age with good petrophysical properties and with hydrocarbon down to.
Akoma – 1X is the first well drilled in CTP-Block 4 and represents a discovery of a potentially commercial nature, due to its close distance to the existing infrastructures. The discovery can be put in production with a subsea tie to the FPSO with the aim to extend its production plateau.
The Joint Venture of CTP-Block 4 is formed by Eni Ghana (operator, 42.469%), Vitol Upstream Tano (33.975%), GNPC (10%), Woodfields Upstream (9,556%), and Explorco (4,00%).
Eni has been present in Ghana since 2009 and accounts currently a gross production of about 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
